My doctor prescribed me sertraline 25 mg for my depression. I was just wondering if it will do anything and what all should i expect.
If it was me, I'd get a second opinion. I was given Zoloft once, with poor results. Unnatural feelings and thoughts, etc. Stopped it immediately. My depression/anxiety issues have been pretty much resolved for many years, so I need no particular medical help in that regard these days. But, I have met several individuals, over the years, who had bad experiences with Zoloft, and have read many disturbing reports on it. Be very careful in your approach to this, or any other drug that may seek to deal with how you think.
Hello sara... I'm currently taking zoloft 100 MG in the morning for depression and have for years this is the only anti depression medicane that has been a help for me. The medicane should be fully in your system after about two weeks to a month. Really nothing can be expected besides your depression should gradually get better making you feel less down or blue. If you don't feel better maybe you need to be on a higher mg. Different drugs work differently on every individuals. Hope this works for you. Best Wishs!
You will not know what to expect until you start it. I have read that it works great for some people. You may have mild side effects when you first start it. You can research Zoloft on this web site and others. It can takes 4-8 weeks to reach a therapeutic dose. We all have different chemistry and may react to meds differently. So there is no exact formula to what will work and what will not. Same goes for the side effects.Best to keep in contact with your doctor during your start up period. Let us know how it goes. Hang in there. :)
Doctors frequently prescribe Zoloft as the 1st AD for a patient because it's supposed to have the least amount of SEs. It used to work very well for me at 25 and then 50 mg.
